Completely finished, everything in its place. Can't wait to get out and fly it. This weekend is looking good. Had to file the back aluminum plate so the nut on the TX pigtail would fit correctly. Not sure why it wasn't designed that way.

Got it completed for the most part, still a few things I'm tinkering with like the buzzer and RX permanent placement. Did my first quick hover test tonight on the porch, raining for the next few days so no choice. Flew just fine, no immediate quirks but not much of a test, either. I'll update when I do. Stuff configured and working:
Smart Audio
Camera Control
Anti Turtle Mode
Reversed Prop Rotation

Yes, that's a lot of orange. :)

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
